    How to paint a boba fett helmet

    Hey guys,
    I actually owe a lot to this site, as after talking to a few members im now off to do a degree in model design and effect in September. Something I would never have found or even dreamed of doing without this site. So I wanted to give something back.

    Seeing Mattmunsons batmobile build and his grapple gun, I really wanted to do a little web series. I posted up asking if anyone needed any paint work doing, and had a lot of folks ask about paints and colors etc. So I thought why not document and do a video tutorial on how to paint a boba fett helmet.

    I know there are a lot of tutorials out there, but Ive always found videos to be somewhat more helpful that pictures. Now take it easy this is the first time I have ever done a video, any tips or crit you want to give would be most helpful

    http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...eature=mh_lolz

    Theres only two videos up at present, mainly talking about what work is involved and then breaking the helmet down into sections. Ive got a basic material and tool video that will be up later, after that work will start on the helmet.

    So let me know what you think, and like, comment and subscribe to see more videos. Should be quite regular updates on this, thanks,

    Welsh

    Keep 'em coming! The helmet is one if the last ones on my Fetto-do list, and I need all help I can get!

    From the first two parts, you are on a good start. I love the way you have covered the helmet parts in detail and name before even hitting the air on the airbrush....

    One thing is for sure, your video's will be watched about a million times....

    Thanks for the great work!

    Re: How to paint a boba fett helmet

    Thanks mate, glad its helping folks out.
    What with all the new GMH helmets (hopefully soon to own number 67 ) starting to arrive at peoples doorsteps thought this could be handy for people new to the painting scene.

    We are well into the paint job now so theres a lot of more videos and substance to them to enjoy, and I like to think im getting better with each video. It would mean a lot if you subscribed, im hoping to have more than just fett stuff as well soon.

    I havent even watched all the videos yet, just clips of ones where you started the stenciling, and i know this will help me understand the stenciling big time. Sometimes you really need to see it to wrap your head around it. I cant wait to get to painting my scratch build! Gotta get my commissions done first though! lol Great job on these vids man, this will be SO helpful!
